Would you consider the audio edition of Flank Hawk to be better than the print version?

Read the book. I had to imagine the characters and keep them straight... the usual. But having the voices live put this a step up.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Krsh makes the story carry. From new blade to tried warrior, pushed the limits with the same caution and fear each soldier faces.

What does Michael A. Slusser bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Michael is my son. Don't laugh just yet. I have often heard him deliver speeches, lead assemblies, teach as a professor of English, and even sing a few notes from 'Fantom

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I'm into Tolkien,Trilogy, and even real war stories. Not for the gore, but the valor and glory. This book has it, with no punches pulled about the foibles of men and battle.

Any additional comments?

Michael, I didn't check with you first. But you have done Terri W. Ervin III a real boon. Looking forward to the next from both of you.
